Mark McGhee has been appointed as the new manager of Sky Bet League Two side Barnet.
McGhee left his role as Scotland's assistant manager after the end of their failed bid to qualify for the 2018 World Cup and he now takes over from Rossi Eames at The Hive.
Eames had been in charge of first-team matters at Barnet since April, first in caretaker charge before taking over on a permanent basis in May.
The 32-year-old is staying with the club as their head of youth development.
A statement confirming McGhee's appointment read: "Rossi felt that now was the right time to take a step back from his position with the first team to allow someone of Mark's profile to bring his experience to the role.
"Rossi will work with and oversee all players throughout the Academy up to U23 and be a key part of the Technical Board to help ensure there is a clear player pathway to the first team.
"Alex Armstrong will continue in his role as assistant to Mark at the club."
